Hi guys, just found a 20' skiff in great shape. However it will need a new sole and I'm not sure how well I could adhere it to the old fiberglass. Is this possible? Is it even worth trying? Thanks for any information.

So I went to get pics and decided to thoroughly look this thing over...wow what a mess. There was a new gel coat on the hull but the fiberglass underneath was flimsy and would crack simply by pushing on it gently. I think I'll be looking for another project, so glad I didnt buy it.
